Natural Body Cleansers

Updated on August 14, 2009

Natural Body Cleansers

In the wake of all the recent lawsuits and uproar over medicines and pharmaceuticals that have done way more harm than good, many people are turning to natural body cleansers and other methods to detoxify their systems and keep their bodies healthy. This approach is considered to be a more “holistic” approach, as some call it, meaning that natural alternatives are explored instead of depending on man-made chemical alternatives. As most of us are aware, it seems like pharmaceutical solutions tend to come with risks of side effects that are almost as bad (and sometimes seemingly worse) than the condition that’s being treated. The difference with natural body cleansers is the fact that a more preventative approach is emphasized…basically, it’s the difference between defusing the bomb before it blows and cleaning up the debris after the explosion. The holistic or natural approach emphasizes becoming healthy “from the inside out”, and one of the cornerstones of being able to accomplish that is promoting intestinal health. A large majority of physical diseases and disorders originate within the intestine. If you think about it, it makes sense…if you don’t keep your intestine cleansed, the foods that you eat are trapped within the intestinal walls, and after a while they begin to become toxic to your system; this can cause a host of physical ailments and health problems, particularly if you are a heavy meat eater or if you frequently consume foods that are high in cholesterol. So one of the bastions of cleansing your body the natural way is to find some type of food or supplement that does a good job cleansing the colon. As a matter of fact, when people refer to doing a “detox diet”, or any type of detoxification process, they are mainly referring to eating foods that are known to cleanse the colon. Also important to mention in the detoxification methodology is actively avoiding certain foods as well…for instance, the usual detox diet will include either abstaining completely from or severely limiting your intake of caffeine, alcohol, and refined sugars, among other things that are believe to increase your overall “toxicity”. One of the main points of all this talk about colon cleansing is simply to get the body to a point where you are having bowel movements on a regular basis. Irregularity is a sign of an imbalanced diet, and most experts agree that if you are not having a bowel movement at least one time a day, you are already a candidate for an increased risk of physical ailments due to a lack of colon health.

Natural Body Cleansers and Detoxification

One of the primary objective of using natural body cleansers is to get the body to the point where it is alkaline, which simply means that the pH of your body is in balance, and you do not have a high level of acidity in your body. A highly acid body is a body that is primed for all kinds of physical problems to go haywire. So what natural body cleansers are we talking about in particular? Well, a good place to start is by eating generous quantities of raw fruits and vegetables…you can never go wrong if you start of on this foundation. Also important is to supplement  your diet with probiotics (that’s the “good guy” bacteria) such as is found in the Activia brand of yogurt, and also digestive enzymes, which can be purchased in caplet form in any local nutritional supplement store. Other important items to add to your list of natural body cleansers are cleansing herbs such as Echinacea, licorice root, cayenne pepper, ginger root, etc., of which all are believed to have cleansing and purifying properties. Again, the major objective is to get that bowel system working on a regular schedule, so that your “plumbing” is functioning properly, and also to encourage maximum absorption of nutrients so that the body can have a better foundation to work from. Although this hub hasn’t gone into extreme detail in any one area, it is highly recommended that if you are interested in learning more about natural body cleansers, do as much homework as possible in order to get a full picture of all the different options that are available.

      Thanks for expressing your ideas. I'd also like to covney that video games have been ever evolving. Better technology and innovations have assisted create practical and interactive games. Most of these entertainment games were not actually sensible when the concept was first being used. Just like other styles of technological know-how, video games also have had to develop by means of many generations. This is testimony on the fast progression of video games.
